Laptop/notebook recycling differs from the recycling of ordinary unwanted computers and other IT equipment, because laptops and notebooks contain batteries and TFT screens that pose a hazard to the environment (screens contain mercury). For this reason, we recycle laptops separately from other computer waste Laptops and notebooks also contain many useful metals that can be extracted, so defective devices are often exported to the developing world as waste. To prevent this, WEEELABEX certification is mandatory in the Netherlands for companies that handle old computer hardware.
If you have laptops and/or notebooks collected for recycling, it’s recommended you first check whether you’re dealing with a WEEELABEX-certified company. This watertight guarantee ensures unwanted equipment is recycled legally and responsibly inside the Netherlands.
When old laptops and notebooks arrive at IT-recycling, we first remove batteries and send them to a battery specialist for recycling.
